3rd Grade Team
Hello Wildcats! I am excited to be a part of the McKeel family for a 7th year. This is my 19th year teaching 3rd grade. I spent the first 11 years teaching at Sikes Elementary, then came to McKeel to continue my teaching career. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Development Pre-K-3rd grade at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. I then moved to Florida to pursue my teaching career. Also, I have my Master's Degree in K-12 Educational Leadership from the University of South Florida. I have my ESOL and Reading K-12 Endorsement too. I absolutely love teaching and am focused in making learning fun while creating a hands-on learning environment in the classroom.
We will use Remind as a source of communication this year. 3rd grade teachers will send reminders via text to all 3rd grade students and parents that sign up. You may sign up as many phone numbers as you would like. It is beneficial if you sign up both parents as well as the student, if they have a cell phone. Send a text to the number below and include the message listed below to sign up!
Text the message @mckeel3 to the number 81010 or if you are having trouble with that text @mckeel3 to 863-578-5562.
